I am excited to announce that I am guest posting on The Ravenous Couple today. If you don’t read their blog, you should definitely check them out. They are a very cute couple with a wonderful motto: Cooking Life Together.

I’ve followed their blog from their long distance relationship days through their sweet engagement story. They always have the most beautiful photos on their blog. They will be getting married at the end of this month and have a series of guest posts lined up. I feel so lucky to be guest posting on their blog this week.

For my guest post, I tackled the classic and popular pineapple bun (bo luo bao). Out of all the different chinese bread variations, this is my personal favorite.

Pineapple buns can be found at any chinese bakery and at dim sum. They have an addicting butter sugar crust, similar to streusel on Western desserts. They can be hard to make, so I’m relieved that my first attempt came out well. Please head on over to The Ravenous Couple for the full recipe and post.  I am also submitting this post to Yeastspotting.


Chocolate chip? Double chocolate chip? Or peanut butter? Now you don’t have to choose. You get all three cookies in one bar.

I told you I would be introducing more cookie bar recipes to my blog. You didn’t think I’d just leave off with those decadent, calorie crazy Ultimate Cookie Bar cookies did you?

I’ve been wanting to do this post for a while now but it’s taken me some time to get my act together.

I like to see different flavors of my favorite snacks available in other countries. One particular obsession I have is with all the different flavors of kitkats in Japan.

Here in the U.S., we get milk chocolate, an occasional dark chocolate, and maybe a white chocolate. Not very inventive. But in Japan, they have many flavors, with each providence having its own unique flavors and certain flavors being produced only during limited holiday times, etc. According to wikipedia, there are close to a hundred flavors in Japan.
